LaGrange head coach Steve Pardue, right, has stepped down as the Grangers head coach. He d been the head coach since 1994, and he won more than 160 games and three state titles. LaGrange head coach Steve Pardue, right, has stepped down as the Grangers' head coach. He'd been the head coach since 1994, and he won more than 160 games and three state titles. slideshow There was no epiphany, no dramatic moment that made Steve Pardue realize it was time to hang up his whistle.
No, Pardue has just had a feeling for awhile that this would be his final season as LaGrange High's head football coach, and he made that official on Monday when he told the school's principal that he was stepping down.
He told the players this morning, and the announcement on his replacement is expected to come this week.
"I don't like the term retiring. I'm not retiring," Pardue said. "I'm just going to change what I'm doing right now."
He leaves behind an extraordinary legacy of winning at LaGrange High.
He came to the school as an assistant coach in 1991, and the Grangers won a state title that year.
Pardue became the head coach in 1994, and over the next 17 years, he amassed a record of 161-46 that included three state championships, five trips to the semifinals, and eight region titles.
Pardue is a man, Branch said, who made everyone around him feel that the team could accomplish anything.
Pardue said he doesn't know what he's going to do next, he just felt it was time to step away from his current job.
"I'm at peace, and I'm excited about whatever's next," he said. "I know from a personal standpoint I've got to find something that's real time-consuming."
What that is he doesn't know right now.
He talked about possibly working in athletic administration, and of course he hasn't ruled out a return to coaching.
He did say that he probably won't remain at LaGrange High next season as a teacher.
"I'm kind of anxious," he said. "It's a leap of faith. I prayed about it, and I trust the Lord. I usually have a plan for everything I do. I don't like to fly by the seat of my pants."
Former Troup coach Bubba Jeter, who faced Pardue plenty of times as an assistant coach and head coach at Troup, has great appreciation for what his former coaching rival accomplished.
"Coach Pardue is a man who has instilled great character and work ethic into his players," said Wiggins, who is now the senior head coach in Troup County with six years at Callaway.
Pardue and his wife, Pam, arrived at LaGrange in 1991, and they soon realized this is the place they wanted to call home.
After 20 years, Pardue said his appreciation for his school and the community has only grown.
"I'm blessed that I found LaGrange," he said.
Pardue, who grew up in Kentucky and played football at Austin Peay University, came to Georgia in 1985 to be an assistant at Fayette County High under Conrad Nix.
After four years there, an opening arose on the LaGrange High staff, and Pardue applied for the position and got it.
He coached linebackers in 1991, and the Grangers went 15-0 and won a state title and the USAnational title that season.
He also coached the offensive line and was the offensive coordinator before Gary Guthrie resigned to take over the Rome High program.
The school named Pardue the new head coach, and the rest is history.
He has won a lot of games, and he and Pam have raised a family here.
They have two children, Morgan, a 2007 graduate of LaGrange, and Chas, a freshman at LaGrange.
"I was thinking the other day, we've been here 20 years," Pardue said. "I've spent more time in LaGrange than Ihave at any place in my life.
"People ask me where my home is, my response is LaGrange. This is home."
Pardue had plenty of opportunities to go elsewhere, but he and his family loved living here, and he didn't want to go elsewhere.
Finally, though, he felt the time was right, although the decision was not an easy one.
"It would have been easy if I didn't feel that way about this town," he said.
Steve Pardue, LaGrange ..., 2 Sept 2010 [cached]
Steve Pardue, LaGrange High's veteran coach, knows what his team is up against.
The Newnan Cougars are 37-4 over the past three seasons, they were 13-1 a year ago, and they haven't lost a regular-season game since early in the 2007 season.
When the Cougars welcome the Grangers Friday night, they'll be trying to win their 29th consecutive regular-season game.
"You can be scared or excited," Pardue said about the prospect of facing one of the state's best teams right off the bat.
Newnan is the kind of team, Pardue said, that will let you know where you stand as a team, and that's just what he wants.
"Ilike opening with Newnan," he said.
"They do a really good job," Pardue said.
The Grangers, Pardue said, are ready to play.
"I think our kids have done the work every day, and they've done a good job, especially considering this year and the temperatures," he said.
